Government has expressed concern over the high prevalence rate of HIV infections and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) among youths, especially college and university students.
Health and Child Care Minister Dr David Parirenyatwa said HIV prevalence rate had decreased countrywide from 29 percent to about 13 percent.
"So your children that you are sending there would always think that they don't have anyone to control them while out there, resulting with them catching HIV and STIs. So, that is one group, young women, young men."
